Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Alto Siós is a red wine coupage of the Syrah, Tempranillo and Garnacha varieties produced by Costers del Sió, in the D.O. Costers del Segre, in Catalonia.

Alto Siós is made with clusters from the winery’s six best plots. After the harvest, the grapes pass over the selection table before being taken to the winery where they are pressed and macerated cold. They then ferment under controlled temperatures with cap plunges and rack and return, techniques that are used to encourage colour and phenolic compound extraction, and that are carried out in separate batches and varieties.

The resulting wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels and is then aged in French oak barrels of different origins and toasting to achieve complexity and elegance.

Costers del Sió is a relatively young winery, set up by Juan de Porcioles who, making his dreams a reality, acquired the estate in 1992 and works with his family to revive the area’s wine tradition with the aim of producing high quality wines with their own personalities.

The estate lies on the banks of the Sió river in a place called Flix. The vineyards are planted in shallow soils of silty loam texture and lie at an altitude of 310 metres, where the climate is predominantly Mediterranean with continental influences.

“A great wine starts with the vine, and we must take care of it as it deserves”. This is the philosophy the Porcioles family and their team work with and this is obvious in the Alto Siós wine.

When we refer to the DO Costers del Segre we think of wines with a continental character, which in some respects is true, but extensive replantation of international grape varieties means that the majority of wines produced here lack a geographical or territorial trademark, even though the vast majority of the wines are technologically perfect. However, there are currently wineries such as Mas Blanch i Jové, Costers del Sio, L’Olivera, Lagravera and Thomas Cusiné, among others, who concentrate their effors on producing wines with what are considered varieties native to the region. However, the majority of this region is still dominated by classic international varieties.
